"The concept of the White Ally is bankrupt. One cannot be an ally to a category of people. To speak the words “I am a White Ally to people of color” is to commit an act of double speak, to internalize non-sense. There is no singular black voice that can be listened to, no authentic community , life experiences and perspectives. To think otherwise, to think that
all black people share a common opinion is extremely problematic, one
might even say racist. One can be an ally to individuals though there
are other wleadership which to follow. There are only many different people with different ideasords in the English language which describe this relationship with more grace: friend, lover, partner and sometimes cellmate or co-defendant."
